Track Name: Something Inside
Something Inside

Is there something inside
Soft as her eyes?

Is there someone to find
Calm as her voice?

Is there somewhere to hide
Safe as her skin?

Is there something inside
Cold as her hands?
Track Name: Maybe You'll Wait
Maybe You’ll Wait

Maybe you’ll wait
But until autumn, I won’t feel a thing
And I’ll sink to the black

And until I’m stronger, I won’t leave my brain

Maybe you’re awake
But until autumn, I won’t sleep to think
And I hope I come back

Maybe you’ll wait
Track Name: Edit

I want to shave the years
And cut days shorter
Lose the time awake
And stay asleep

Help me to help you to
Find a way to
Help me to help you too

I want to forget
And keep thoughts hopeful
Lose my mind again
And find a bed

I want to fade the scenes
And trim life tighter
Lose the time awake
And stay asleep
Track Name: Drowning Seas
Drowning Seas

Back home in the cold
Saving myself
From the old me
Saving myself
In drowning seas

Deep down in the waves
Saving myself
From sun burns
Saving myself
From wrong turns

Trying to get away
Track Name: New Light
New Light

Help me get out of my head
Help me get out of my head
I can’t stop thinking again
Help me

Tell me love isn’t a waste
Tell me love isn’t a waste
I can’t stop feeling again
Tell me

Show me life in a new light
Show me life in a new light
I can’t stop dying again
Show me
